  1. Hi I am coaching Brentford second season... january window now... want to sign one or two decent central midfielders and one or two strikers to play in 442 diamond style any recommendations? thanks
  2. how can mitigate the lack of pace of my centre backs? put one on cover role?
  3. lost 4-2. how can i stop lobs from halfway line? its all too easy. my defenders were caught time and again
  4. Thanks. I tweaked the line a bit. FB-S CD-D CD-D FB-S BWM-D DLP-S IF-A AP-S IF-A / W-A CF-A/AF-A played just one game. dominated possessions away from home 70-30 but couldnt really create too many chances. Also, i noticed that i let the opponents have too many shooting chances when playing with less closing down and slow build up. 9 (4) vs 10 (4)

    Transfer Advice

    depends on how you wanna play but a new left back for me. There are so many good LBs in the game. btw where is Rasford? :O
  6. hi thanks for all your replies. What if I change one of the IF-A to AP-S? and in doing so, also change the corresponding FB as WB-A? Will that bring more balance?
  7. Thank you Cleon for your quick reply. Then there's a main problem: my team doesn't really have a "playmaker" and I have no money to really sign one. I have a few strikers (target man) who could (maybe) fill in the AMC role. Hence, thats why I wanted to use one of them as a shadow striker. The reason why I went for two defensive minded players is because of the two attacking wingbacks. I wanted the midfield to offer some cover. I have a bunch of MC/DMCs I can use so I can change their duties to suit the front 3/4. the reason why i switched to 4-2-3-1 is because the team was rather bland playing 4-1-2-2-1 and i tried using a shadow striker in half a friendly game. the team played better so I wanted to see how I can develop a tactic around it In your mind, do you think that would work?
  8. I am trying to develop a 4-2-3-1 for my team. As my team has no playmakers or attacking midfielders, I am trying to fit in one of my striker as a SS or Trequistita role. In doing so, I want him to complement my lone striker. Not sure what role I will/should him. any suggestions the team set-up i have in mind is WB-S CD-D CD-D WB-S BWM-D CM-D IF-A ??????? IF-A ????? I want my team to have a slow build and patient with ball but look for quick breaks if presented with the opportunities. Any suggestions will be helpful

    Mauro Icardi?!?!?!

    i coached Icardi at inter, easily their best striker but yeah he seems to be rather inconsistent. you can easily tell whether he would get an 8+ or 6 just by the first few highlights. he either plays very well or very badly! PSG came in with 100 mil and i sold him

    [FM17] *Actually* Good Freekick Takers?

    also, Boschilla from Monaco scores freekicks for fun in my newcastle save. though not sure if he is good enough to play for United

    Ronaldinho if he hasn't retired
  13. Hi I am coaching newcastle second season (in epl) and have a budget of less than 10 mil. looking to sign a battling midfielder who sits in front of the back four to sweep things up. Duncan of Sassulo would be ideal if he wasnt 20M+. does anyone know any other players similar to him? also, i would prefer someone younger with resale value. thanks
  14. i am coming to the end of first season. I am wondering if i should sign a new contract. Will inter get a lot of funding to spend? If not, I will go find a big spender who would take me in

    How does Director of football work?

    is your DoF Ragnick by any chance? He keeps trying to sell my best youth stars under my nose, least to all, to the Guadiola!
